Messaging Client ICQ Comes To iPhone

It’s been a while since I regularly used my ICQ account for instant messenging but the prospect of a newly revamped, official app for it makes it all the more appealing.

As part of its 3.0 update, ICQ Messenger allows its users to chat with all their phone, ICQ, Facebook, GoogleTalk, AIM and Mail.ru contacts, all from the one app. All that’s needed is a mobile phone number to join and login. It even automatically finds phone contacts already in the network, making it all the easier to send free messages.

Threaded messaging and history support has been added meaning it’s as easy to consult what’s just been said as it is with any conventional SMS message. A new and easy to view contact list also ensures that ICQ feels integrated into the rest of the iOS experience making it an ideal way to chat with friends for free.

Easy to use, ICQ can be accessed simultaneously from any platform such as online, via PC or phone. Push notifications mean that the user is always available for chat if they so wish, plus there’s social feed updates available from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr.

For the ICQ user of old, this may well be an ideal entry point to the already busy world of messaging clients.

It’s out now and it’s a free app.
